    Had a Hawk try to get my 5 week old chicks today. Looks like I will have to cover the chicken run. [​IMG]

    Hawks are a big threat around here too (north central FL). We also have other predators (dogs, raccoons, opossum, people, etc.) so we have a cover over our girls run and they are quite happy in it as the cover also provides some shade.

    Here's a link to some good information about chicken predators you might find interesting:
